A cattle drive in Genoa.
Roger Van Alyne |

Minden resident Roger Van Alyne took both awards in the 2016 Eagles & Ag Photo contest.

Van Alyne’s image of a Genoa cattle drive took the prize for best wildlife-agriculture and his shot of a bald eagle lunching got the nod for best birding.

Images were eligible for consideration if they were taken in Carson Valley between the end of the 2015 Eagles & Ag event and the end of the 2016 event. The winners are chosen by the Eagles & Ag Steering Committee.

Van Alyne will receive a check for $250 ($125 for each category) from Eagles & Ag.

The cash prize is made possible by a donation from Legacy Land & Water.
